Gable Court
Completed by renowned local builder Don
Wakefield in 1989, Gable Court provides modern,
light living accommodation set in a small close
within this unspoilt hamlet. On the ground floor,
an impressive reception hall creates a striking
impression upon entering the house. The house
benefits from two main reception rooms: a drawing room featuring a fire in the wall which takes smokeless coal and logs and French doors leading out onto the south facing terrace, a family room, again with French doors leading out onto the south facing terrace and an open fire and a goodsized study. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a Mark Wilkinson kitchen and there is both a separate utility and walk through pantry with large, fitted floor to ceiling wall units.
As with many of Don Wakefield’s properties, the
staircase is a real feature of the house. Towards the top there is a galleried landing giving views out of the stunning dual height glazed bay window which also floods the house with natural light. Situated on the first floor is the main suite comprising a spacious bedroom and en suite bathroom. Also located on this floor are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Gable Court is approached by an impressive driveway before passing through electric gates which open onto ample parking, double garage and large south facing terrace. The gardens wrap around the house, the rear garden being fully enclosed, mainly laid to lawn and with three Espalier fruit trees.
